By  | 

The Subaru WRX STI S209 will not be the first S model from Subaru but it will be the first model that will be offered in the US as well. Inspired by the WRX STI Nurburgring Challenge racer, here is what we know about the vehicle right now.

This model will be getting a power boost going from 310hp to 341hp. Besides that, the vehicle will also be getting a new intake duct, an induction box, silicone turbo inlet duct. The steering wheel will also come with paddles to spray water on the intercooler to bring down the temperature.

The engine will be mated to a six-speed manual transmission and it should be coming in with a much lighter body although Subaru did not really highlight that fact.

According to Subaru, they will be offering about 200 units of the Subaru WRX STi S209 model and will be offered with two World Rally Blue Pearl with gray wheels and Crystal White Pearl with gold wheels. No price has been release yet.
